There have been many reports along the lines of 'if you clear a path and someone falls on it, they'll sue'. Well I clear my path and if you fall on it and threaten to sue, I'll hit you with a shovel. And I don't have a plastic one.
It's nice to see a whole street come together and say 'Sod off' to the Safety Elf. It works because there's no record of who cleared which bit so if some compensation monkey takes a Fifa tumble, who will they sue?
We need more of this. Councils can refund the council tax to those who do the job they're paid to do, as well.
